YAY!! Great save Sir B.

If we test to re-create the problem, we can figure out how to avoid it in the future.

amybean-thanks, and an excellent tip!
leleliz and GROG- you two should wrassle for it! bahahah!
Maddogmike, LLT, and Babalu-yep, it was a good save, but a difficult one! Hope I won't have to ever do THAT again!

I just finished this here bowl:



It's hand built with castings of a sculpture I made on the sides.
I like the coconut look the brown and white glazes give it.







Thanks for visiting!

Bowie

For some reason, I just came up with the idea that I want to carve a tiki chess set...

I wonder what I should use for pawns?
Buzzy Out!

Unless that little Caveman can find out where I live there is no way hes getting his grubby mitt on my mug!

I agree BOWLana great job!

It looks similiar to a Treasure Craft type of glaze with the brown/white combo but that is one of the things I love about it-the new/old look.

How big is it ?

I love how you just breeze in and post something amazing every once in awhile like its nothing but an after thought for you

Awesome work!

Understated elegance with that "this here bowl" Bowana -

very "Hawaiian" IMHO and very "clean"

Thumbs up!

Buzzy- Oh shoot! Busted!
GROG-Thanks and Bowana like new name.
leleliz- The dimensions are 9" across by 7 1/2" high so it's rather small. I would post more often but I don't have much to post!
MadDogMike- Thanks from one nut to another!
TikiG-Thanks Bro, yes very Hawaiian!

A wonderful bowl. Your eBay auctions with dabigpuka are going well, everyone should check those out too. Wendy

Thanks Kenny and Wendy. Yes, the Bowana/Gecko mugs are going well on ebay!

I didn't want to post this bowl until after it was fired in case something went horribly wrong. Nothing went horribly wrong, so here 'tis:

In the greenware stage. The Moai were cast from a press mold of a sculpture I had made previously. They're very thick so the concern was that they may crack off or something. The bowl is hand built from a slab.









It was difficult for me to chose a color for the inside. I finally decided on this green. Gives it a retro feel methinks.
The dimensions are about 9"W x 5"H.

Thanks for visiting!

2 pieces in one week, B'wana's on a ROLL! That green interior worked out very well.
